This is certainly some kind GD.
The SCARLET jam
that closes the 1st set references the flow of 'Fingers'
and also foreshadows the set 2 'Lightning' opener.
Backing vocals are strong
ie-USED TO LOVE HER
My son's word is Chill
not as we used it back in N.Y.C
like CHILL --as in CHILL OUT
no this c-h-i-l-l--- is like MELLooW
"A little bolt of INSPIRATION"
The ROSES deserves a nod as well.
---Jerry and ensemble---
And just when I am chill..
oh those drums for SAMSON
Yonder comes DELILAH yet again..

splice this in with the other SBD for full show
If someone could combine this partial SBD with the other partial SBD it would make the complete show in one. I use the Relisten app and would love to not have to jump around between sources to hear the full show.

i recently reviewed the partial version of this not realizing that the entire show was available. idiot!
a few glitches aside, this is the shit! crazy fingers is bliss...though not the best of the year even (see 6/3 & 6/13), Peggy-o is gorgeous, a great and rare dew (leading up to the monumental dew of 12/31/76, and of course, barton hall 5 months after that)...so much here!

Just to clarify - this show was at Mershon. Since Deadbase always listed it as St. John's, I went to the OSU library and pulled the Lantern review from microfilm. The advance ads listed it at St. John, but the review in the Lantern indicated it was moved to Mershon due to
lack of ticket sales.
Interestingly, there was an article in the Lantern 2 days before the show which was about how St. John was the most expensive venue of its size for bands to play. Apparently the balconies (upper level) had to be closed for safety concerns, reducing capacity but the rental price for bands stayed the same. So the article speculated they would have trouble booking
bands. They stopped hosting concerts not long after.

The show has all the hallmarks of a 5-star show. A great first set, a great second set; A first set that includes a long jam, which here is Crazy Fingers with touch of the old Spanish Jam theme; Interesting transitions (the main part of the second set, though the long drum solo can be skipped); moving ballads; good vocals; tight playing. No, not the best of the year, and a few sound glitches, but fares well in the collection of 30 years of shows.

Blown lyrics aside, Crazy Fingers is real nice, but my favorite is Peggy-O. Beautiful version, and the Begonias by itself is a treat. What's not to like?

there is nothing trippy about crazy fingers,i'm thinking,off the wall keyboards,or drums or something.just a spanish jam type thing at the end of the song.nice jamming in scarlet and st.stephen a+quality thanks archive.

I hadn't heard a note of this show prior to downloading it. I've always felt that '76 was a very underrated year. This isn't one of that year's better shows but it's quite worthy of a D/L if only for the the very unique Crazy Fingers. Trippy seems to be the popular word for this version. Other standouts are a great Scarlet and a rare Morning Dew encore. There are some recording issues here and there that keep this show from getting a 5 star rating.
I agree with Muddy69. Crazy Fingers is pretty trippy. Some good jammin' at the end and Jerry seems to mumble the lyrics a little less than usual. Very nice show overall, though it seems like the sound seems a little iffy in places (although that could just be me). Worth a d/l.

This is an exceptional version of Crazy Fingers.
If you are a fan of the song as I am check it out , it spans 15 minutes and goes places. Very nice exploratory jamming at the end. Sound is good as well. I like it.
I don't know how else to say it: These 76 boards sound cozy. Small venues probably helped achieve that fact. I have heard cleaner boards than this one, but this is a very nice show that is pretty far off the beaten path. This version of Crazy Fingers brings out the most mournful Jerry vocals! That's the setup, then there is a typical 76 2nd set well played. The 2nd set highlight is the extended wandering before the start of NFA. The final payoff is the very COZY Morning Dew. There is that word again.

This show was originally scheduled for Mershon Auditorium on the Ohio State University campus, however was moved to St. John Arena where the Buckeyes basketball team played at that time. St. John Arena is a much larger venue (approx 12,000 seats) while Mershon Auditoriun seats about 2500. Completely different facilities. Basketball arena vs. tiny theater. So glad to see a complete show posted. Excellent performance by the band. 1 of several outstanding shows in Columbus Ohio area! Also see 4-19-78, 6-9-91, 7-1-92, 6-11-93 and Dicks Picks 10-31-71. Enjoy this show and Go Bucks!
